Intel: Chips will connect to human brains

When Intel (INTC) commissioned management consulting firm Booz Allen to write a whitepaper on the future of mobile technology, the world’s largest chip maker probably expected information about voice recognition and “predictive” smartphone applications. But the firm’s research goes a step further, suggesting that in the future mobile devices may not need to “hear” our voices or “watch” our movements, because they may connect directly to our brains.

 

The whitepaper, released to CNN, says that mobile devices will start “melding… directly into the human body” and that the “biological brain will be augmented exponentially.” Its release happened to coincide with Samsung’s launch of its new Galaxy S III smartphone, which Samsung touts as a product that

 

understands you, (and) share’s what’s in your heart.

Of course, even today’s blazing quad-core processors (produced by Intel’s competitors) are not yet as fast as the human brain. The report notes that processor speeds need to increase significantly before chips are ready to interact directly with the human brain.

 

In the United States, it is likely that processors embedded in machines will significantly precede processors embedded in humans. Intel is a major supplier of chips for machine-to-machine applications. The cellular M2M connectivity service market grew at 26.2% in 2011, according to ABI Research. The firm measures the M2M market in cumulative connections, which it now estimates at 110.6 million.

it will! i will hack some girls!

maybe they will have better chips than ours so they can be more smarter than now ;D

Whats so funny? The human brain contains about 50 billion to 200 billion neurons (nobody knows how many for sure), each of which interfaces with 1,000 to 100,000 other neurons through 100 trillion (10 14) to 10 quadrillion (10 16) synaptic junctions. Each synapse possesses a variable firing threshold which is reduced as the neuron is repeatedly activated. If we assume that the firing threshold at each synapse can assume 256 distinguishable levels, and if we suppose that there are 20,000 shared synapses per neuron (10,000 per neuron), then the total information storage capacity of the synapses in the cortex would be of the order of 500 to 1,000 terabytes. (Of course, if the brain’s storage of information takes place at a molecular level, then I would be afraid to hazard a guess regarding how many bytes can be stored in the brain. One estimate has placed it at about 3.6 X 10 19 bytes.)

The brain has about 100 billion nerve cells, so at least that many bits (about 10 gigabytes) could be stored, assuming the brain uses binary logic. But it probably doesn’t do so. Instead, information is believed to be stored in the many connections that form between the cells. This is a much larger number: Current estimates of brain capacity range from 1 to 1000 terabytes! It would take 1,000 to 10,000 typical disk drives to store that much information.

I laughed with the way he said that , i know that our brain is better than a processor , most of people know it

    • Hello add me on discord i have 2 mages for sale 78 lvl's nobless with original email. I have gear also so we can equip it for fair price. Discord : drey#9737
    • This post originally appeared on MmoGah.   With each update, Final Fantasy XIV is receiving some amazing new content and Minions. There are new locations and new functionalities that developers put up in patch 6.2 Endwalker for Minion collectors and players who are interested in getting them. Here we have a guide about where and how to get them.   Minions in FFXIV In case you are new to the game and unsure about the Minions, we will discuss it first. Minions are referred to as pets and don't have any function in the gameplay. Some Minions respond to some emotes and only stick to their owners.   To summon the Minions, you can open your Minion Guide found under Character in the main menu or drag the icon and set it on one of your hotbars. When you want that Minion out on your side, you can press or click it like an ability.   You need to know that you can't call multiple Minions at a time. When you summon another Minion while you already have one, the former one will disappear.   Wind-up Scarmiglione in FFXIV The first one we have here in our Guide is the Scarmiglione, which you can obtain through the Fell Court of Troia dungeon and only drops from the final chest. It is a rare drop in comparison to most other Minions.   On the other hand, if you are not in the mood to do some RNG (Random Number Generator) game, you can get this Minion from the Market Board (MB) to make things easier when you have enough Gil. If you can't afford it, you can buy safe and cheap Gil in FFXIV at MmoGah with fast delivery, then purchase the Minions you want from the MB.   Wind-up Erichthonios in FFXIV Next up in our Guide is Erichthonios from Abyssos: The Eighth Circle, or Abyssos: The Eighth Circle (Savage), a level 90 raid introduced in patch 6.2 with Endwalker. This Minion is Unsellable Market Prohibited, so you can only acquire it from the raid. There is no shortcut. Pterosquirrel in FFXIV   Another new Minion included in Patch 6.2 is Pterosquirrel. There are two ways to get this Minion. One is to spend 400 Faux Leaves to exchange with the Faux Commander, which you can find in Idyllshire at X:5.7 Y:6.1.   You can earn Faux Leaves by playing the Faux Hollows Unreal Trials once a week, so using this way will take some time to get the Minion.   Another way to get the Minion is by purchasing it from the MB. Since it is tradeable, you can sell it, too, if you want to make some Gil in FFXIV.   This Minion is adorable. When you use the pat emote, it will jump and fly. When you use the handover emote, it will feed from your hand and can stand on your shoulder when you use the emote beckon.   Felicitous Fuzzball in FFXIV Another Minion in FFXIV Patch 6.2 is Felicitous Fuzzball. It is a Minion from your Island Sanctuary. You can use 4k Seafarer's Cowries to exchange it, but if you haven't done with your Island yet, do not exchange it. You need those blue currencies to upgrade your Island first, then exchange Minions, Glamours, or any other things they offer.   This Minion is untradeable, so you have to earn it by yourself.   Clockwork Cerulean Chaser and Clockwork Crimson Chaser in FFXIV Lastly, we have two Minions from the PvP series. You have to be at level 15 and Level 16 in the PvP series to get them, and these are time sensitive, meaning you can only get them during PvP series 2, which is before patch 6.3.   If you want them, starting grinding your Crystalline ranks before patch 6.2 ends is a good idea.   Well, that's all to the Minions in FFXIV Patch 6.2. If you want to have new cute buddies while traveling the world of Eorzea, make sure to check this Guide.   Thank you for reading, and enjoy playing Final Fantasy XIV.
